Sparrows Can\'t Sing - B. Windsor, J. Booth


Charlie returns to the East End after two years at sea to find his house demolished and wife Maggie gone. Everyone else knows she is now shacked up with married bus driver Bert and a toddler, and they all watch with more than a little interest at the trail of mayhem Charlie leaves as he goes about sorting things out.

Sparrows created a stir.  Its debut at the ABC Cinema in Stepney attracted a large audience of the rich and famous, including the notorious East End mobsters the Krays, who had a walk-on part near the end of the film.
